​​Sylvia Caras

3 October 1935-23 January 2022 
She left us on her own terms, without pain, may she rest in peace. We love you, Sylvia

The first Sylvia Caras that died was her daughter, Sylvia Victoria Caras who went by her middle name Victoria.  "Sylvia Victoria Caras died August 28 in Aspen from a rapidly progressive cancer. She leaves a mother, a brother, and many, many friends."

   Our Sylvia, who was a founding member of MHCAN and a board member many times over, had intended to leave us much sooner.  She had stayed for the comfort of others.

   She leaves a super nice grand daughter who brought us warm socks for homeless folks who needed them.
